Aquatic plants are influenced by the surrounding landscape

Flowering plants living submerged in lakes or streams evolved from terrestrial ancestors. However, successful adaptations to living submerged required several adjustments in anatomy, morphology, and physiology. Nevertheless, all aquatic plants utilize CO2 in their photosynthesis to produce carbohydrates and release O2 as a waste product.... click to read more

Life after death? Fossil survival strategy rediscovered in living corals

Water warming is killing corals, but not only in tropical seas as most people know. In temperate seas like the Mediterranean summer heatwaves are causing mass mortalities in many marine organisms, corals included. The Mediterranean Sea hosts a single reef-builder coral: Cladocora caespitosa. In the past,... click to read more

The bumpy-effect of climate change on transatlantic flights

The North Atlantic flight corridor is the busiest oceanic airspace in the world. Fundamental to its operation is the jet stream - a narrow ribbon of fast west-to-east flowing air (sometimes over 200 mph) that peaks in strength at around 30,000 - 40,000 feet (the... click to read more

The migration of marine plankton during the industrial era

Marine plankton forms the basis of life in the ocean, and any changes in marine ecosystems have a profound impact. From observations since the 1950s, we knew that plankton species have been changing their distribution in a way that is consistent with anthropogenic climate change.... click to read more

Warmer oceans will harbor lower animal abundance

Climate change is not only altering the ocean's temperature, currents, and productivity, but also the most known forms of animal life. This includes a wide variety of species, from small invertebrates and fish to turtles, tuna, and whales - changes in the marine environment influence... click to read more
